Meet Lou Andreas Sand – model, drug addict, neurotic.Out of touch with reality, emotionally unstable, washed up – Lou Andreas is suffering a breakdown. Isolated, in a beach house she recounts her life of modeling success and failed romance to her lone remaining friend – a former lover and photographer. Through tape-recorded conversations, her life – untethered to time or reality – unfolds as a series of fragmented inconsistencies.From director and former fashion photographer, Jerry Schatzberg (SCARECROW, THE PANIC IN NEEDLE PARK) comes this enigmatic puzzle. Long forgotten, until its restoration, PUZZLE OF A DOWNFALL is, as captured by Faye Dunaway’s unforgettable performance, a haunting tale of self-destruction. (Jazmyne Moreno)
